From the President

“Welcome to the new Boston Surgical Society! A wealth of fascinating material is awaiting you with a click from this page. “The Red Book” of our shared history is a good place to start.

The Society got it’s start as a journal club dedicated to fostering leadership and the advance of surgical practice. These remain our goals today. We hope you will join us as Boston Surgical Society serves our diverse and enormously talented surgical community. If you are not a member and live in New England and are board-certified in your specialty please consider applying.

We have a great schedule ahead of us in 2019, including the first ever “Pub Debate” on February 4th to settle the issue of centralization or decentralization of acute care surgery. The winner will be determined by the vote of the “Pub” in attendance, please don’t miss your chance to weigh in!
Our March 4th meeting will feature a presentation on the new innovations in limb amputation.

The Third Annual Resident Case Competition on April 1, as in prior years, is a fantastic opportunity to see tomorrow’s surgical leaders square off. Not to be missed!

Please consider accompanying me and other members of BSS who will be joining the New York Surgical Society and the Philadelphia Academy of Surgery for the “Northeast Surgical Society” meeting in NYC across Friday May 3rd 2019. We hope to bring this meeting to BOSTON in 2020!

Help Boston Surgical Society to grow, prosper and best represent the amazing diversity of talent of Boston Surgery!”
